Just to follow-up with two things.

Firstly, it would be really useful to us to have a response from the 
HTML-WG in advance of our telcon on 18th October. Please let me know if 
the HTML-WG are not going to be able to respond by 18th.

Secondly, Dan Connolly has been working on tidying our meeting record 
and the is a more readable narrative account of the relevant piece of 
discussion at: http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2004/10/05-07-tag#htxl

Best regards
